I don't know what I can say other than everything everyone else said, this is definately one of the best films on TMO.

A fantastic film you've crafted here. Your writing was nothing short of flawless and your editing complimented the story very well, not to mention the excellent VO work.

My only problem was the car dialogue scene, everytime the camera angle changed, it was obvious that the scrolling background was restarting, it was a bit distracting. A steady establishing 2-shot of them in the car would have worked around this.

Though this is only a grain of sand on the wonderous and gorgeous beach that is Affari.

Fantastic work!

An amazing job on such a subject. You got the feel just right for them, I find that kinda hard to do. I'm glad it got Hot-Picked! I agree with Tre, it was flawless. And I would be happy to use you in my film. Fantastic job!

Amazing! Out of all of the TMO films that I've seen, I never seen some of the animations that you used in that movie. This is a masterpiece. I can't wait until Affari 2. I don't understand the meaning of the title, but I know it's Italian.

---------- FOSTER FILMS REVIEW ----------

Affari is a classic violent tmo gangster movie, it's lavish sets, acting and script makes this an all time classic to be cherished by anyone who has the time to lay there eyes on this cinematic classic.

The story really kept me entertained and mesmerised to the very end, the only tiny little problem in this movie was the uzi's, andto my knowledge they where not around then, but i am not going to brag on about that, because the rest of the film pays of.

So anyway to round off i would like to award you my special studio award, so just copy and paste the writing below into the movie info if you wish.

Affari - Winner Of *۩*۩* TFoster's The SilverFire Cinematic Movie Masterpiece Award *۩*۩*

Congratulations and hope you are proud of your award. the film will now be put onto the award section of my tmo movie page along with a link to the movie so people can check it out.

Cheers

It was a thrilling Gangster Genre!
The flashback intro was a great start-off to the movie!
Movie voice acting and time passages actually showed through the movie nicely!
The flash scene feature was a fresh idea which I've only seen done by this movie!

A hotpicks movie for sure! Mods were great and helped to believe we are in the sames years than them (sorry for my bad english).
On sound side, music and actors performance were great (and sound effect too).
There was some really good freecam use and the editing was great.
To conclude on technical part, that was great!
Now about the story, this is a classic mafia movies, but it was really good. I really lked it and enjoyed it.
And one more time, I really enjoy the EXCELLENT music!!

A great film, well done!!

Entertaining, exciting and lovingly developed. I would love to see a more exacting control of your scenic transitions, and this is what halts my final star. As a whole the movie approaches great distinction but doesn't quite get there.

Regardless, I enjoyed it very much for it was a great take on the gangster genre. Congratulations.

Absoutely fantstic, a great stand alone ganster film that has some of the best authentic VOs ever. This one really captured the whole mafia feeling magnificently

- yogurt_king_cinema

Though I'm always highly reluctant to give anything five stars in this day & age, this rating is well deserved. Though one could ask for more effects the story telling is so on cue and the cutting so sharp that one is glued to the screen. Little nuances such as the [eye-hurting-word!] & fire motif and the three lefts in the bar fight make the visuals seamless and more importantly, part of the story-telling. The voice acting is mostly just good, but there are moments in the film where the emotion really comes through - a rare occasion on TMO. A job well done. We'll have to see more for this studio

The fraise "one of the greatest TMO movies I've ever seen" is tossed around a lot, but hell I'm impressed. It was fantastic. Well done.

If you have time I would greatly appreciate it, if you would head over to my studio, and review the short comedy "I Think We Should See Other Rabbids"

Again congrats with a job well done.

This has to be one of the best movies I have seen so far. I enjoyed the acting, directing, and mood of the film. You did an excellent job on building Sonny's character from a hard working young man, into a powerful gangster. This was definitely well worth every minute of the film.

This movie captured the look and feel of a clasic gangster flick. The costuming, acting and direction were all superb but it was the music that was off the charts GREAT!. This is a true TMO classic. The 14 minutes just flew by and left me wanting more. Great job!

Wow. Wowowowowow. The greatest, most powerful film on The Movies(TM) Online. Just beautifu;. Very, very impressive. The voiceovers were outstanding. The whole concept was truly amazing. By far, the best action movie on TMO. I cannot believe this, it is absolutely unbeliveable that this movie isn't number one in the charts. Everyone who's rated this film gave it five stars. Not ONE person who watched this film gave it a one, two, three, or four. Bookmarked, I'm rememberin' this movie for a LONG TIME. 5 STARS! -FallenThomas

DANG! That movie is Great! It looks a whole lot like The Godfather, only made in a game, & that it's 14 minutes long! & I know this movie is rated R cause of all the strong language & violence, but this movie is a complete masterpiece!
Please rate my movie, "Dark Resistance" or "Death Apartment"
Thank you & Keep filming!

Amazing mafia film.

which is a good tihng, dont worry.

Oh, my god. This is now officialy my Favorite movie on TMO! I´m actualy starting to work on a script that is a Mafia tale in the 40s, and when i saw this i came up with an IDEA (just idea, you got my mail.) that you might want to help me with some things like script/find music/get the right set dressing for right feeling. By the way i´m verry glad for your VO´s for my movie! i just can´t find the last files, and i hope you will want to be in part 2 when you get a mic.
Cheers! :D

My computer crashed the first time I watched this. Ment to come back and leave a note sooner, sorry.

This is the 'Godfather' of TMO. Super vo's, super action! I thought the camera use was a bit styless, and for this movie, it was a style of its own and was perfect. Great job, man!

An excellent gangster movie with some fine acting. Very good storyline and plot with some decent character development. A gripping tale about toughness and loyalty.

Filled with impressive images and cinematography to create a captivating movie. A few areas where the fades could have been avoided. The music goes along well with the scenes where it is used. Good period feel with costumes and sets. The voice actors did a superb job.

A well done film, with a great screenplay, cinematography and acting. Look forward t more in the future..

Wow Esegal, that was absolutely brilliant! That music was just fantastic, and fit sooo well. That's the first thing that popped into mind as I wrote this review. The music was just incredible, and suited the film so well.
It was a really, really fun flick and also well directed I must say. You took a strong directive step with some creative work.
Another thing I must applaud you for is the flow of the story. It kind of ran in a captivating straight line, yet could wind down every path. I felt it could've been just a bit more, but nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed it. I really liked the parts where they were out on "business" and you used jumpcuts to show the various kills, I thought that added a nice effect, especially with that beautiful score in the background.

I really liked the character development and the camera work was spot on.
It's a great mafia film, and will be tough to beat. The VO's were pretty good for the most part, but I felt they were just a little underpar on the emotion level, not to mention the occasional pops. Brilliant set dressing too.
Now as far as my 6th star award goes, I was kind of torn between my decision, and I don't know why.
I don't know why, lol, so congratulations on a well-deserved 6th star award my friend!

Easily one of the best films I've seen on TMO ever, let a lone a classic gangster film to be put on its own pedestal. So much detail, such lavish story and character, and such powerful visuals, it paints a picture that will remain a classic long after the canvas is dry. HotPicked by Tigereyes.

I totally agree with the hotpick. 5 stars all the way dude.

A great gangster movie, the camera angles were used to great effect and the music really set the tone for this movie. The use of props, set dressing and costume fit in well. I enjoyed the story with Sonny signing up and the gang stand off was really well done, the intro/ending scene was a nice touch and the characters were really well Vo'd.

Easily one of the best films I've seen on TMO ever, let a lone a classic gangster film to be put on its own pedestal. So much detail, such lavish story and character, and such powerful visuals, it paints a picture that will remain a classic long after the canvas is dry.

Firstly, let me explore your story. Such detail and careful precision give us a not so linear, but easy to follow, story. I usually dislike the non-Linear story presented on The Movies Online, however, you perfected it. Our characters are presented with great care for the actual characters, and the detail, the perfect engineering of unique first meetings. Every time we saw anyone do anything, we always knew why. That is a great feeling when you watch a movie.

As a whole, I loved watching your film till the end, because I didn't know what was going to happen, and cared enough to find out. To often do I begin to scroll down to the review section to make notes, or drag myself away from a broken plot. This film kept me gripped until the close, until the very last gunshot I didn't dare open another window and divert my eyes from your visual spectacle.

The editing was amazing. You achieved successful non-linear story by using effective sequencing shots that were strung together very well. It almost felt as if the shots were moving how we think, at the pace that seemed natural and strong. The best shot of the film was in the kitchen, the gunshot is fired and Sonny washes plates in the background, the attention to detail secured the rest of your film's respect, and make clear you were in it for the long haul.

Every shot of the film was calculated, conditioned, perfected and pruned to be the best possible shot. Nothing was extra, nothing could be clipped and throw away without losing a delicious fragment of story, or impacting visual.

As a whole, you ignored an overdose of mods which, as someone who relies on mods for that simple "I haven't seen it before" feeling, was refreshing. I've watched a lot of movies, and never have I seen your sets, our sets, carry such weight and skill in front of them. Really just well done.

This is my favorite film I've seen in a long while, and to it I award my most prestigious award, the -PawPrint-. Just an amazing film for its action, its character, and its style that, despite the lengthy review, can only be captured by watching the film for yourself.

I have to say that is one of the best movies I have ever seen on TMO. The script writing was excellent the way the music fitted in with some of the sequences was amazing. I also liked the flashback to show what happened before dinner. And the end is suspense to which leaves me asking one question is there going to be a sequel?

Posted on July 25, 2007
- Goofparade

An excellent movie that took me by surprise. I wasn't familiar with the filmaker and this being only second real movie I was quite impressed by the quality of the entire production. The voice actors were excellent and I just loved Kuroken's "Alfredo".
The original music, although as bit cliche did work well in the end.

I'll be watching for your next movie for sure.

Film on!

I'll meet up with you soon, old man.

The Good:
The story. Part narrative, part real time. Very good.
The Music. Nice touch. Sounded good.
The set and scene selections. Very well done. Ansd the set dressing was pretty good.
The voices were pretty good although Anthony's was a bit inconsistent.
Good use of free-cam and directitorial skills. The editing was smooth.

The Bad:
A couple times the weapons seemed out of place for the time period.
Anthony's voice was clear most of the time but sounded like it was in a tin can at other times.
The ending was somewhat cheesy. I believe the dialog at the end could have been a bit better for the type movie it was.
(did you really have to kill me-Sal-off?) LOL

Overall:
A good film that shows much effort and thought. Very well done. 4 3/4 stars rounded up to 5.

Damn that was good. The 15 minutes just flew by, so engrossing it was.
Shades of Goodfellas, but in the best possible way. Just a wonderful script, played perfectly.
I'm also a sucker for a flashback narration, so it suited me down to the ground.
In Highest Res the darker scenes played beautifully, lovely to look at.
Stunning work my young Paddywagon =)

Apart from the Ingame Sound FX bugs this was flawlessly good.
The Scenes, costumes, settings, dressings, editting all spot on.
Really like your editing & use of camera angles.
Another thing that really stood out to me was the
Body language & dialogue was just PERFECTLY matched.
That was really great & made the viewing experience/story
all that more compelling and exciting to watch.
The Colours and moods set by the well chosen music
also made this film great. A Stellar Effort here.

I�??ve been around TMO for a while, and to tell you the truth. I have never seen such a Epic tale like this. I have never seen a mafia movie like this on TMO. This is the first time I�??ve heard your name, and seen one of your films. But when your next one comes back, I promise I�??ll be there to watch and review. The Godfather, Goodfellas, and The Untouchables. All great American Mafia films; and Affari Great TMO mafia films.

The Archaic Awards
Review

Story: 9/10 A very good story. It could have been told a bit better though. The beginning, (while good), was a bit abrupt and the ending was similar. I got the basic idea of the story, but I felt it could have flowed better.

Music: 5/5 Music really set the tone! Wonderful selections.

VO/Subs: 11/10 Powerful performances by all. Every member of the cast obviously put time and effort into thier delivery. By far one of SnakeEater's best roles!

Script: 4/5 I felt the f word was overused and sometimes placed into a line just for the heck of it. Also lines like "Find a Black man and suck his d***" were not really helpful. Other than that though it was a decent script.

Extras: 5/5 Good freecam usage and good choice of costumes. The custom overlay worked well too.

Editing: 15/15 Some of your editing choices were brillient. The action sequences turned out wonderful! You obviously put time into your film and I could honestly tell. Great job!

Final Score: 50/50

This would have been such a better movie with a thumbnail! LOL.

Great movie, this was brilliant! Everything was done with such good detail from Al's office to the awesome death montages! Great writing and direction. For a 14-minute film this flew by I was so engrossed. Some very impressive VO work by Al's and Anthony's characters.

My only critique was that Sonny's accent seemed to change in every scene and the ending seemed abrupt.

Other than that this was really impressive. Excellent job on a masterpiece! I can't imagine all the work that went into this. Tremendous effort, you and everyone involved should be pleased with this movie.

This is by far the best gangster film I've seen on TMO. You did a great job of writing and directing here. It felt as though all of this could actually have happened. The camera work was splendid and the use of props was flawless.
Excellent character work. Each had depth and layers to them. The cast did a brilliant job of bringing them to life.
The music was perfect. It did a wonderful job of setting the tone for each scene.
This is a superb movie that I am happy to be a small part of. Great job Esegal.

I was drawn in by the flashing-fade thing you did in the beginning, that was well-executed, as well as the scene transitions, not like fade in or fade out, more like in a physchological sense, It seemed like you gave each set it's own thing that made it stand out, thats cool.The camerawork, like derby said, was "stunning," you gave me news views on angles and composition, that is great! Now, your story, you told me that you are a great mafia-movie writer, this film's storyline did not let me down one bit, it was everything I was expecting plus a double bonus! Great Job! Now, your cast was very "professional" and they delivered, big time! Every word was as clear as air, and they even had accents! Most mafia movies I watch on here, british accents or subs.... So, all in all, very nice job! I was enthralled by your amazing camerawork, storyline, and voice overs. Great Movie!

A fantastic film you've crafted here. Your writing was nothing short of flawless and your editing complimented the story very well, not to mention the excellent VO work.

My only problem was the car dialogue scene, everytime the camera angle changed, it was obvious that the scrolling background was restarting, it was a bit distracting. A steady establishing 2-shot of them in the car would have worked around this.

Though this is only a grain of sand on the wonderous and gorgeous beach that is Affari.

Fantastic work!

[The following review contains several spoilers! Do not read this review, unless you have watched the film!]
A very good mafia film!! In my opinion, by far the best mafia film on TMO to date!! You did really well with this film dude. It was well worth all those 14 minutes. There was a great story going on. I was hooked in straight away.
I loved all the characters, they were well developed, well acted and so much more.
I really don't think that the movie was really hard/disturbing to watch, maybe it's just the way I see it or maybe it's the fact that Mafia films are violent, so i'm not suprised that this mafia had a lot of violence in it! It definelty worked for the film for me as it's a Mafia film. So, it's going to be about revenge some-way or another, like this film!!!! I love revenge movies dude!!
Even if I was object to the extreme violence in the film, which I haven't, it's still a really good film regardless. You had an excellent cast, this film truly was a masterpiece!
Your va's really brought these characters to life and brought it across that they are those characters by their stunning/out-standing performances.
I really loved this film so much, it was so professionally well done.
I loved the way you added quite a lot of cool sound-effects, they really increased the enjoyment of watching this film. There were two parts of the film that I really remembered as I loved them. I mean, i loved the whole thing, but there are two parts i remember very distinctly. My first best part is the very cool montage of Sonny learning how to fire guns, that was very well done.
Considering that the music was really great. Top job!
My second favourite part in the film is the shoot-out that takes place in the house and out-side, in the street. That was visually really well put together, not to mention the exceptional editing, camera-work and so much more.
Throughout the film, there was exceptional editing, stunning camera-work, etc, it's just in that scene those elements really were great, a very easy part of the film to remember for me!!!!
I feel that you have really out-done yourself on this movie. I also felt that Sonny did the right thing killing Antony at the end as Antony really wasn't doing himself that much good by continuing to kill people that worked for those people who killed his brother and he needed to be stopped!!! I felt it was a very dramatic way to come towards ending the film. I loved the way that Antony said that line just before he got shot and then after Sonny shot him, he said "That means business". A great line!!! There was a lot of great dialogue in this film dude. The script was hot!!! A lot of great enjoyable moments! The ending was very omg, that Alfredo had been killed. I wasn't really that shocked in a sense due to the fact that a lot of people had been killed off in the film, so... i'm not saying that was a bad thing about the film.
I love to watch violent films now and again, they're great. Especially Mafia films, this sort of reminded me of the God-father. Not to say that it's your version of the God-father. I really feel that you've created a mafia tale of your own and really made something out of it!! Well done!!!
I also loved the way that the film was out of sequence and that if you were [by you were i mean the other members, not you] watching the film really closely, like i was... I noticed that near the end of the film is where the film started in the bar with Alfredo and Sonny talking!!
Also, i know that scene is further on in the story. Well done for showing that!
That's very clever of you!!!! Great stuff!!!! I wish i could give this 6 stars dude or like 5 million stars, but i can't... however it's a solid five star, no doubt about it!! Congrats!
After I finished watching it, i was pretty speechless. My only negative about the film is that it would be of been great if there had been opening/ending credits, but on another side I don't care as the film was pure gold and very entertaining to watch!!!!
Overall: A tmo classic in my books!!! A highly recommended film!!!
There is so much to enjoy in this film. It's very well written, so well executed and a sheer delight to watch. I was on my seat from beginning to end.
A very good movie to say the least!!! Well done once again done!!!
I can't wait to more from this studio! You just keep to impressing me and impressing me dude! Keep it up!!!! Fab stuff!

Wow, I'm really impressed how well you have done being new to the community. The story and voice overs were top notch -everybody sounded great. Editing was also good...but I especially liked the choice in music - it really helped set the tone and get the viewer involved with the story.

A Great Film inthe Tradition of the Godfather!

Great work Esegal! I found the story to be quiet enjoyable and the language to be most realistic, and in proper context. The music, likewas was well done and performed. Great Cast aswell, Ken does a great Mob boss, and Artorious, knows his foul mouth language! hehe. SnakeEater as well did good with his accent,but I felt at point he was pushing a little to hard at points or was more ghetto sounding. Another flaw i noticed was at the end, not so much a flaw, but it seem it ended little quick. maybe add some credits at the end, that would have deffidently helped.

Overall a great job by everyone!
